Eastern Conference foes Brooklyn and Miami will play at the Barclays Center.

Dwyane Wade played the final game of his legendary career Wednesday night in Brooklyn and the whole game had a festive energy too it.

Wade punctuated his career with one last triple-double, finishing with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a 113-94 loss to Brooklyn.

Spoelstra was a Heat assistant at the time of the shot, but considered himself the guy who shagged balls for Wade.

"Listen", James told Fox Sports Sun in a courtside interview, "we couldn't miss D-Wade's last game".

Wade and the Heat ended their skid with a win last night, and they are 39-42 on the season and 4-6 in their last 10 games.

"As you guys might expect, this is my last home game". "That's obviously my hometown, but it doesn't really matter", White said . Nowitzki , 40, announced after the game that he would retire following the Mavericks' season finale Wednesday at San Antonio .

However, the festivities for Wade will be memorable and have likely been in the planning stages ever since he announced in September that the 2018-19 season would be the last of his 16-year National Basketball Association career. "He's given so much to this game".

Anthony explained why he encouraged Wade to return for a final season at an event in Charlotte in February.

"It's been an unbelievable journey for my guy", James said, "and I'm happy to be here for the last little roll before that train comes to a stop".

Not only that, but the younger Wade also shared a heartwarming message for his father ahead of the Tuesday evening showdown between the Heat and 76ers. "Before he said goodbye, we surprised him with five more". He was breathing life into young players, creating a new generation of Miami Heat players with our young guys that, with his guidance, they took on another level.

"This was about the team".
